About this book


This book provides a summary of geodynamic results from Iceland that presently are found in a great number of scientific articles, but have not been collected before in a book. The ever increasing number of scientists interested in geology and geophysics of Iceland should find the book a "must" to gain knowledge about previous work and the status of knowledge about Iceland.
